an american for assassination, it's the obama administration advancing novel legal theories. >> we have have as a basis for action a congressional statute that allows us to to operate and balking at congressional oversite. >> i have nothing on alleged memos regarding potentially classified memphis. >> this president when he was a senator excoriated the bush administration for its presumption of an imperial presidency and presidential powers. now that he's the president, he's lucky he doesn't have a senator obama who is chas chastg him from the floor of the united states senate. >> reporter: some of the obama supporters dabbing at the sand man in their eyes appear to have awakend to the double standard. >> i have to say i was definitely on the critical end of things as were members of my family. we were very, very, very concerned about how far the bush administration pushed the boundaries of not only what is constitutional but what is morally right, and this is definitely in the same category. >> obviously a democratic administration white house secret war policy memos are very different from
the other obama administration has been, officials have been. i expect by now he'll admit it was a terrorist attack which would be a welcome change. look, i think he's hoping to be asked about drones because he doesn't want to be asked uncomfortable questions about other issues. and my fear is that the drones, is going to divert attention away from benghazi that need to be explored and divert attention away from issues like quite frankly. john brennan was the height of the bush administration the enhanced interrogation program. so he was literally the principal consumer of intelligence for khalid shaikh mohammed and others. if he claims he was opposed to it why didn't he speak out and quite frankly why aren't we interrogating people. when you vaporize a terrorist with a drone you vaporize their intelligence in their brain. we're killing everybody on drones and happening on his watch and ought to be answering questions about that. >> alisyn: and simon, you know how washington works, and things are not always as they seem at first blush. is it as we hear marc sort of saying, leaked to the new
on the panel are received classified information about how the obama administration is justifying drone strikes own american terrorists overseas. brennan helped manage the drone program. he is likely going to be challenged on it today. lawmakers also expected to ask him about waterboarding and for what he knew about some high-profile national security leaks. a lot of big topics. chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel is live from capitol hill with more. within those hallways, mike, what are you hearing about? what will really be the focus of this hearing? >> reporter: jenna, i think you hit on a lot of the key topics. senator i don't know mccain is among those very interested in brennan's position on those enhanced interrogation techniques during the bush administration. brennan came out and said he was opposed to waterboarding. mccain wants to know if there is any evidence that brennan was opposed to waterboarding. brennan said he favored some aspects of the enhanced interrogation program. as for the drones we expect he will take some heat from the left. also some heat in terms of kill
because you are covering the campaign and when there is a change of administration, there are always more invitations to speak. people feel somehow you must know something. nothing is worse for a speaker on politics like a reelected president -- barack obama, bill clinton -- that means continuity rather than change. but as far as speaking itself, i enjoy it. i enjoy the challenge. you are walking into a room full of strangers. you have never met them, they have never laid eyes on you, they may have seen you on television in passing or whatever -- within an hour, they walk out with some sense of you. 45 minutes to make them think, make them laugh. that is the highest praise you can get, is somebody coming up and saying, you made me think and made me laugh. that is high praise for me as a speaker. >> let's lay down the basics for mark shields -- born where? >> massachusetts, may 25, 1930 seven. >> parents did what? >> my dad was a paper salesman, involved in the town, government and politics. my mother had been a schoolteacher but at that time when schoolteachers married they could no longe
and be okay as a republic. >> on the subject of border security the obama administration has record deportations, nearly 400,000 in 2011. one study shows the u.s. spends $18 billion every year on immigration enforcement, more than all other federal agencies combined. what more can be done? >> well i'll give you two instances, cocaine, a kilo of cocaine today is cheaper than it was when i was a federal prosecutor so we're not doing a terribly good job keeping the drugs out and 2,000 ak-47s went to arm the mexican drug cartel. i realize you cannot her m hermedically seal the border. we have two borders so i'm talking about both of them, but from a national security standpoint, a law enforcement standpoint, from a sovereignty standpoint i don't think it's asking so much we know who is coming into our country. it's not fair to people who are following the legal process to have an unlawful process so it's national nativeism, it's not xenophobia. we want to know what is coming into our country. janet napolitano has given the same statistics. to be honest with you, the fact our economy is
the obama administration, an international field some change is coming to haiti. . jobs have been created, schools have been built, yet, gender-based violence remains severe. today i'm introducing a resolution calling attention to the plight of haitian women and children and calling for action on their behalf. with the strategy to prevent gender-based violence, the obama administration is on the right track. congress and the administration must ensure robust funding for these initiatives, including the u.s. agency of international development, gender equality and female empowerment policy to meet the continuing need. for me, this issue is personal. i've seen the tent cities firsthand. i have spoken with the women. i have counseled the victims and witnessed the scars of indignation and pain. i feel the anguish in my bones. but i also feel the hope. let's work together to ensure that no woman in haiti, no woman in this hemisphere or in this world has to bear the indignity of sexual violence. thank you, mr. speaker. i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoma
years of president obama's administration there were four times the number of targeted killings than in eight years of president bush's administration. your testimony today that the huge increase in number of lethal strikes has no connection to the change in the obama administration's detention policy? because, obviously, for capturing a terrorist we have the opportunity to interinvestigate that individual and perhaps learn about ongoing plots. if the strike is done that opportunity is lost. are you saying today, it is totally unconnected to the obama administration's shift in its detainee policy? >> i can say that there is not an occasion that we had the opportunity to capture a terrorist and we didn't and we decided to do a strike. there is no correlation in any type of the c.i.a.'s interrogation program. if you look at the last four years what happened in a number of places, such as yemen eastern areas, there was a growth of al qaeda, quite unfortunately. what we tried to do in this administration is to take every measure to protect the lives of american citizens whether it is abr
? critics on the progressive left, some of them, and libertarian right are taking issue with the obama administration drone policy. this is a family dispute in my house. polls show most americans support, even most liberals if you will, even when it means killing americans who are plotting with al qaeda to kill other americans. >>> plus, four senators, two democrats and two republicans, are really working on a deal to expand at least background checks for gun sales. two of the four senators are members of the nra. if they can strike a deal, then a big part of president obama's gun safety proposals could be within reach. >>> plus, the terrific movie "silver linings playbook" puts mental illness in the spotlight tonight. we're joined by the director of that film, the great david russell, to talk about the issue and the oscar history the movie could make. i think it's got a shot. >>> texas governor rick perry escalates that war with his california counterpart -- he's not even slightly a counterpart. jerry brown is so much better. that's coming in the "sideshow" tonight. and this is "hardb
last month and it's not a widely recorded story the obama administration asked the decided once again to change the product and change the name. so they decided in mid-january that they didn't want to call it health exchanges but they would now have what we call health marketplaces, marketplaces without our kit perhaps. the official explanation for this was that it was because the word exchange could not he translated into the spanish language and for the billions -- millions under the exchange they want to know what it meant, and health exchange or a health marketplace. i want to be helpful in this regard so we can at least try to provide sufficient terms for the beginning of the obamacare dictionary. it was mixture and exchange and of course now it's called an insurance marketplace. there are some other terms in law. a new suggestion translated into the spanish and i won't include my bad accent but that's a new term for it under the affordable care act, donation. another term in the law, mandate. that has been translated new and improved for hispanic and the fisheries, suggestion. w
terror which has grown 700% under the obama administration. whatever the benefit of the drone strikes, they have created enormous resentment among some here in the region, who view the strikes as another sign of american arrogance. everywhere i travel, from yemen -- >> i think americans they have no right. they have no right. this is our fight. >> reporter: to pakistan. >> you can keep saying, yes, you are hitting the top leadership. but the by-product of this is anger, anger among the innocent people who are getting killed. so you're just creating more terrorists. >> reporter: now the man who signs off on the kill list from a basement office in the white house, john brennan, about to be questioned in front of the world. >> i suggest to you that these targeted strikes against al qaeda terrorists are indeed ethical and just. >> reporter: in pakistan alone, there have been more than 300 drone strikes in the last decade, killing thousands of al qaeda and taliban, but more than 300 civilians, as well. a world away in remote villages, you can hear them. like a distant muted chain saw. a du
and what policy the obama administration and congress to propose to help stimulate the economy. this is just getting under way. >> a prime example of our ability to involve experts and debates on topics that are critical to the business community. i'm going to start us off today by queuing a video from christopher giancarlo of the gfi group, our sponsor, for this series. but for some want to make a brief announcement. this series, this economic series that we pose every quarter, has been accredited by the national association of state boards of accountancy to provide continuing professional education, credits for accounting professional. so we are quite excited of that and hopefully you will as well. this accreditation highlights the value of this and other programs that would hold her at the chamber. for more information on that please visit our website, or speak to some of folks outside in the registration desk. after the video i'm going to ask marty to come up directly and begin the program the first award from our sponsor, the gfi group. >> good morning. gfi group is deligh
negotiations and making sure it ends up right. >>> for the fourth time in five years the obama administration has missed its deadline for submitting al budget to congress. house republicans, surprise, surprise, don't like it. they plan to vote on a bill that would force the president to give more details about the budget plan. everyone should be focusing on substance over deadlines, they say. >>> a chilling moment in court. jodi arias, the woman accused of killing her boyfriend, confessed to the jury she's a murderer. >> did you kill travis alexander on june 4th, 2008? >> yes, i did. >> so 32-year-old went on to say she acted in self-defense when she stabbed her exboyfriend 27 times, slashed his throat from ear to ear and shot him twice in the head. if convicted she faces the death penalty. >> that's a strange case. >>> trayvon martin would have been 18 years old today. the unarmed florida teen was shot and killed nearly a year ago. lawyers for the man who pulled the trigger, george zimmerman, will be in court in orlando this morning. they're requesting a trial delay and additional records in
. >> al, thank you. this morning lawmakers are getting nuances about why the obama administration believes it is okay to use drones to kill expected terrorists including americans. it's an issue that will be key at today's confirmation hearing for the president's pick for cia. michael isikoff is calling this story for us. michael, good morning. >> savannah, good morning. drone strikes, the obama administration's weapon of choice against terrorists are coming under scrutiny. after a disclosure justice department document obtained by nbc news this week that justifies the targeted killing of americans suspected of being top al qaeda leaders. for the first time today the white house is sharing the classified memo that lays out the legal basis for such strikes with members of the house and senate intelligence committees. the move comes at a crucial time as john brenan, president obama's nominee to be cia director, faces his confirmation hearing today on capitol hill. in the war over drone strikes, a major reversal from the white house. after years of ironclad secrecy, president obama directed t
that the obama administration has gotten the tax increases they have want. taxes have gone up on american families. revenue is up. now americans are asking congress to do the rest of the project, which is deal with the spending side of the equation and none of us want the across- the-board cuts you would get with the sequester. americans would like congress to do its job and try the areas that need to be cut. that is a two-way street. the white house has never set down on the other side of the table to engage. host: if the sequestration goes through, $85 billion across-the- board, what does that mean for the economy? guest: it means we are implementing what was agreed to in a bipartisan agreement in the past cycle. remember, all the parties sat down and said how can we work this through, and what is the amount of money we need to be spending? republicans and democrats started at different points, but came to an agreement that we need to begin cutting spending to the tune of $1.2 trillion over 10 years, so basically it would be and lamenting a bipartisan agreement. host: so, what is the li
. what is the obama administration's approach to border security? guest: it's interesting because it's becoming very come plegs. there is a strong border security to the imflation reform bill that's being discussed and to the proposal that was put together by the gang of eight senators who sat down and came up with a new proposal. their border security component is somewhat specific and their whole immigration reform package hinges on securing that border. the obama administration proposal has more to do with sbror enforcement of how we enforce verification of employment. the fact that people are here in the united states legally and that kind of thing, and is less specific on border element of that. now, to me, the whole hinge centers around what is a secure border. what is border security? and in fact, there is no definition. it's subject to different interpretation s and what they are doing in the senate proposal which i think is going to be the one that goes forward and is tweaked and debated and discussed, they want to put together a commission in border security. and it's this
